The last people to be buried in my family was my grandparents somewhere in Georgia. :dunno: Everyone since has been cremated and scattered. We simply moved around to much to leave someone in one spot since their graves would never be visited. I don't even know where my mother is buried. My Dad was scattered off a ship in the Pacific ocean where he served in the Korean war and a small part is here in our house. My brother was also cremated but I don't know what my SIL did after that, I didn't go to the funeral. He was my favorite brother. I just don't get too sentimental over dead people but I'm very glad there are those who do. I know my thinking isn't right but I can't make it any different because that would be lying.

With regards to the Sccy review video, I like the extended magazine and the finger grooves. I use the gun for the long trek in total darkness from my warehouse to my home. I don't have to conceal it. I slip it in my back pocket, fitting tightly behind my wallet with the handle protruding out. I can reach back and get an excellent purchase on the gun for a quick and confident draw. I know it shoots ball ammo, so that's what's loaded. It's drop safe, so I know that unless I puuulll the trigger, it's not going to go bang. Don't misunderstand me, I don't like the gun. I practice with it alot and because of the long trigger pull, it might be the gun I'm least accurate with. Then why carry it? Because the big goofy grip that Barnowl dislikes is perfect for grabbing out of my back pocket. The long crappy trigger allows me a false sense of security. A hair trigger may result in shooting a neighbors dog. Friends ask why I don't use a holster. It's just easier. I unlock it from the security box, slip it in behind my wallet, turn off the lights, pull the door shut and go. This gun took over for a Thunder 380 because of the grip. BarnOwl, I'm not trying to play devil's advocate, I'm being honest. The Thunder 380 is more accurate, more fun to practice with, and doesn't care what I feed it. If my Hi Point had better back pocket balance, I'd carry it.

Most excellent points dewd! Much appreciated information. I love this kind of stuff. Again. My opinon is just that. An opinon. Im glad it works for you! I still wont sing its praises as the greatest pistol. Like some do. But im not gonna trash it. It worked for me. And i tried to break it. But it survived. I like it. I just personally feel it could be much better.

I have a vlog im filming tomorrow that is basically me raging against the youtube establishment that thinks they need to state their opinons as facts.

I love BarnOwls videos and reviews. I just thought it was interesting that I carry the gun for some of the reasons BarnOwl doesn't. I was looking at the combat (rubber finger) grips for my Thunder 380. It's heavier, but I'm only going 100 yards. It's a better gun. DA/SA trigger, not ammo sensitive, hammer block safety and good looking. It's only downside...not made in the USA.

I like the take down survival type .22s also. Always wanted one, never got one. Anymore, I'm more of a pistol guy so probably will never have one, but I still like em!

When I was a kid, my brother and I had a Daisy bb gun that we shoot in my parents basement. We shot at a coffee can an it would only enter and not exit, so we could recycle the BBs. I traded a mini bike engine for a pump Crossman and after shooting the same setup we discovered we were punching through the can and into my dad's bar front. He was not happy. Aaannnyway...a couple years ago a buddy came over with a Henry rifle just like the one in the video. I swear it had less kick than that Crossman. I found the Henry survival rifle to be as accurate as any 22 rifle I've shot, and stores in the butstock. We put a gizillion rounds through it without failure. And quiet too. I was impressed.

Always thought it was a good design, i have a 10/22 takedown. But its still big even broken down. Only the barrel unlocks so the stock and receiver still take up 22 23 inches? I dont like the case it came with cause thats one more damn bag to haul around. The henry fits in any bag over 18 inches and thats awesome. Makes camping fun too, primary rifle is there if you need it. But you aint gonna shoot a cotton tail with an -06. I like the h&r handi rifles as well but they are super heavy and the small shotgun barrels are still to long

I have a couple of the AR7 rifles. I had one given to me due to functioning problems which I cured in about 10 minutes and have been shooting the rifle 4 years with no further problems.

The accuracy of the rifle is as good as any .22 on the market if equipped with a scope and shot off sandbags. They never get that treatment due to the nature of the rifle and the fact that you can not pack them into the stock with a scope mounted.

My solution to that problem is the addition of a GI ammo pouch filled out as a survival kit with a small red dot sight included which indexes well when placed on the rifle once it is assembled. The ammo pouch stays clipped to the sling I mounted on the stock. The pouch is also a good place for a full box of ammo.

A lot of folks do not realize that when you stow the broken down rifle you can fit a magazine in the receiver and another in the magazine storage slot, so you can carry two mags in the disassembled rifle.

So. I felt like a douchebag. Talking about the henry being a "survival rifle" but ive never tried to hunt with it. Today i decided I needed to represent it better. And try it. I only loaded up two magazines. walked to my hill from my dads 4 miles away. I carried a 2 day survival pack. A springfield xds. A henry survival rifle. And two full mags for both. I had set tactical dog loose on the rabbits all last week and this week and i hunted the back side of my hill, far away from the domesticated ones. Sat up base at the ralroad pile though. I took all shots between 20-40 yards. I never missed my head shot. And only one cottontail took a second shot to end its suffering. I used 8 rounds. 1 to make sure i was sighted in. 5 on the rabbits. And two at a very suspicious bunny shaped rock. Which i still say might be a rare breed of stonerabbit.

I figured 4 was enough. I'm quite happy to report that yes. I'd now be happy backpacking with the Henry. Once i could identify the rabbit's eye i was able to hold on that and only missed one eye shot. Accurate as you like id say.
